Inhaltsangabe zu „City of Dreams“ von Anton Gill

Egypt, the 18th Dynasty. Huy was a scribe during Akhenten’s reign before being forced to quit his profession and become the world’s first private eye. He needs to work discreetly to avoid attracting attention of the secret police. But working with a low profile could be tricky, because his latest case has every indication of becoming a huge, high profile one. Someone in ancient Thebes is killing young wealthy girls, quickly, efficiently and silently. So much so that without Huy the Scribe’s natural forensic talent, no one would realise that they had even been murdered. Together with the policeman Merymose, Huy begins to search for the murderer, realising the serial killer must be a person of terrifying power and influence… Can he find the killer without attracting too much attention to himself? ‘City of Dreams’ is a gripping Egyptian thriller from master of the genre Anton Gill. Praise for Anton Gill: ‘Brilliantly researched history blending with a tense thriller to rank with the best of them.’ Reinhard Hesse ‘All you’ve ever wanted to know about sex in ancient Egypt…including a tour of the best brothels, plus tips on how to do it,…Exotic, erotic and highly recommended, like Gill’s first Egyptian mystery, City of the Horizon.’ Literary Review ‘Anton Gill supplies enough tension and breadth of description to keep one wanting to know the answer…and he is very readable.’ Times Literary Supplement Anton Gill, only child of an English mother and a German father, worked for the English Stage Company, the Arts Council and the BBC before becoming a full-time writer in 1984.
